Very sorry to hear.
I always loved fishing and camping with Robert.
I went to an old Colorado report just now and there he is, holding up a big bass like always. He usually caught the biggest fish of the day.
Godspeed my friend.

This is a huge bummer. I don't frequent this site these days, but I always enjoyed his posts, and got to spend some time on the Colorado with him many years back. Paddle on, Robert.

Firefly texted me earlier today. I am sorry to hear of his death and the loss to his family who he valued above all else.

He was on the first group trip I made on the Colorado that included DNR and Larry. Always with a smile he was ever ready with a bit of advice and helping hand. Bless you Robert in this new journey.

That's a great idea Larry.
And for supper everybody has to eat an old cold Whataburger with cheese. :lol:
